THE PRAYER OF OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

Father of Wisdom, Master of the Schools of Men, of 
Thine all-knowledge grant me this my Prayer: that i 

MAY BE WISE IN THEE. SiNK THOU MY FOUNDATIONS DOWN 

deep into Thy bosom until they rest upon the vast rock 
OF Thy counsel. Lift Thou my walls into the clear em- 
pyrean of Thy Truth. Cover me with the wings that 
shadow from all harm. Lay my threshold in honor and 

MY LINTELS IN LOVE. SET THOU MY FLOORS IN THE CEMENT 
OF UNBREAKABLE FRIENDSHIP AND MAY MY WINDOWS BE TRANS- 
PARENT WITH HONESTY. LEAD THOU UNTO ME, LORD GOD, 
THOSE WHOM THOU HAST APPOINTED TO BE MY CHILDREN, AND 

when they shall come who would learn of me the wis- 
dom of the years, let the crimson of my windows glow 
with the light of the world. let them see, my lord, 
Him Whom Thou hast shown me; let them hear Him 
Whose voice Has whispered to me and let them reach 
out their hands and touch Him Who has gently led me 

UNTO this good DAY. ROCK-RIBBED MAY I STAND FOR THY 

Truth. Let the storms of evil beat about me in vain. 

May I SAFELY shelter those who come unto me FROM THE 

winds of Error. Let the lightning that lies in the 

CLOUD OF IGNORANCE BREAK UPON MY HEAD IN DESPAIR, MaY 
the YOUNG AND THE PURE AND THE CLEAN-HEARTED PUT THEIR 
TRUST SECURELY IN ME NOR MAY ANY THAT EVER COME TO MY 
HALLS FOR GUIDANCE BE SENT ASTRAY. LeT THE BLUE ASHLARS 
OF MY BREAST THRILL TO THE HAPPY SONGS OF THE TRUE- 
HEARTED AND MAY THE VERY HEART OF MY CAMPUS SHOUT FOR 
JOY AS IT FEELS THE TREAD OF THOSE WHO MARCH FOR GOD. 

All this I Pray Thee; and yet this, more: That there 

MAY BE NO stain UPON MY STONES, FOREVER, AMEN.

THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNIVERSITY* 

BOARD OF FOUNDERS 

The details of the management of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity are handled by an Executive Committee of 
twenty-one men. The property is legally kept in trust 
by a Board of Trustees of seven men. The General 
Board of Directors meets at least once each year, at 
commencement time, on the university campus near 
Atlanta, to inspect the institution, to review all mat- 
ters of large importance in the University, and to 
give directions to the Executive Committee which is 
elected by them and from their number, and which at- 
tends to the details of management of the Institution 
between the meetings of the Board of Directors. Each 
member of the Board represents a gift of two thou- 
sand dollars or more to the University, or an annual 
gift of not less than $100.00. 

Thus there is no one associated with the ownership 
or control of the institution in an important capacity 
who is not making a personal sacrifice in its behalf. 

In many cases they represent groups, societies, 
churches or families who combined their gifts in the 
founding of the University. 

Prospective students will not fail to note the quality 
of these men, representing the thousands of men and 
women whose sacrifices and prayers have consum- 
mated this fine purpose. As representatives and gov- 
ernors of the Institution they will take pleasure in 
giving any inquirers information as to the aims and 
progress of the Universit}^

16 Oglethorpe University 

HISTORICAL SKETCH 

The historical genesis of Oglethorpe University 
takes us back to the middle of the eighteenth century 
when, under the leadership of Presbyterian men, 
Princeton College was founded in New Jersey and rap- 
idly became the institution largely patronized by the 
young men from Presbyterian families all over the 
world. After a while the long distances which must 
be traveled by stage or on horseback, suggested the 
building of a similar institution under the auspices of 
Presbyterianism in the South. The movement began 
with the Spring meeting of Hopewell Presbytery in 
the year 1823, and eventuated in the founding of a 
manual training school, and this, in turn, became 
Oglethorpe College in 1835 when Midway Hill, in the 
suburbs of Milledgeville, then the capital of the State 
of Georgia, was chosen for the location of the Institu- 
tion. Old Oglethorpe College was thus the first de- 
nominational college or university between the Atlan- 
tic and Pacific Oceans south of the Virginia line, and, 
of a right, claimed to be the Alma Mater of all that 
brilliant company of institutions which were born 
after her in this vast empire. 

The facilities of the old Oglethorpe were adequate 
for the time. The main building was probably the 
handsomest college structure in the Southeast when 
it was erected, and "contained the finest college chapel 
in the United States not excepting Yale, Harvard or 
Princeton." 

In the Faculty of the Institution may be found the 
names of men who are world-famous. Among these 
were Joseph Le Conte, the great geologist; James 
Woodrow, the brilliant and devoted Christian and

scientist; Samuel K. Talmadge, the eminent adminis- 
trator, and many others. It is, perhaps, the chief 
glory of Old Oglethorpe that after three years of in- 
struction she graduated Sidney Lanier in the famous 
class of 1860 and that he was a tutor to her sons un- 
til the spring of '61 when with the Oglethorpe cadets 
he marched away to the wars. Shortly before his 
death, Lanier, looking back over his career, remarked 
to a friend that the greatest intellectual impulse of his 
life had come to him during his college days at Ogle- 
thorpe through the influence of Dr. Woodrow. Her 
other eminent alumni include governors, justices, 
moderators of the General Assembly, discoverers, in- 
ventors and a host of honest, industrious and superb 
laborers for the highest ideals of humanity. 

Oglethorpe "died at Gettysburg," for during the 
war her sons were soldiers, her endowment w^as in 
Confederate bonds, and her buildings, used as bar- 
racks and hospital, were later burned. An effort was 
made to revive the institution in the 70's and to lo- 
cate it in Atlanta, but the evils of reconstruction days 
and financial disaster made the adventure impossible 
and unsuccessful, and after a year and a half of strug- 
gle the doors were closed for the second time. 

Only fifteen years have passed since the present 
movement to refound the university began and they 
have been years of financial disaster and utter tur- 
moil, yet the assets and subscription pledges of the in- 
stitution have passed the sum of one and a half mil- 
lion dollars as the result of unusual and self-sacrific- 
ing liberality on the part of over five thousand peo- 
ple. 

The corner stone of Oglethorpe University was laid 
on January 21, 1915, with her trustful motto engrav- 



18 Oglethorpe University 

ed upon it: "Manu Dei Resurrexit" (By the Hand 
of God She Has Risen from the Dead.) 

THE OPENING, SEPTEMBER 20, 1916 

Oglethorpe University opened her doors in the Fall 
of 1916. After fifty years of rest beneath the gray 
ashes of fratricidal strife she rose to breathe the airs 
of a new day. Her first building, constructed of gran- 
ite, trimmed v/ith limestone, covered with slate and as 
near fireproof as human skill can make it, was ready 
for occupancy in the fall of 1916, when her first class 
gathered on her beautiful campus on Peachtree Road. 
A faculty equal to that of any cognate institution in 
the country has been formed. The work of raising 
funds and new construction goes steadily on. And all 
of this has been done in the midst of financial disas- 
ter that darkened the spirit of the whole nation, and 
against the evil influences of a colossal war, which 
caused the very joints of the world to gape. 

THE ROMANCE OF HER RESURRECTION 

The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads 
like a romance. Beginning only fourteen years ago 
with a contribution of $100.00 a year for ten years, it 
soon gathered with it a band of great-hearted Atlanta 
men who determined to see that their city had a uni- 
versity, as well as a band of far-seeing educational 
leaders, who wished to erect a certain high type of 
institution in this splendid metropolis. The story of 
how dollar was added to dollar during a campaign of 
four years; of how no less than seventy Atlanta men 
gave each $1,000.00 or more to the enterprise ; of how 
the story has been told in cities, towns and country 
all over the South from Galveston, Tex., to Char- 
lottesville, Virginia, and from Marshall, Missouri, to 
Bradentown, Florida; the splendid triumph of the At- 



Oglethorpe University 19 

lanta campaigns; all this is well known. Since that 
time the same wonderful record has been maintained. 
There are now something like five thousand men, wo- 
men and children all of whom have contributed or 
promised from fifty cents to $400,000.00. They are 
the Founders' Club which is carrying the movement 
forward so splendidly. 

HER ARCHITECTURAL BEAUTY 

An idea of the quality of construction and design of 
the institution may be gained from the accompanying 
illustrations. (See Frontispiece.) 

It will be seen that the architects and landscape 
artist spared no pains to make it one of the really 
beautiful universities of America. The architecture 
is Collegiate Gothic; the building material is a beau- 
tiful blue granite trimmed with limestone. All the 
buildings will be covered with heavy variegated 
slates. The interior construction is of steel, concrete, 
brick and hollow tile. The first building is the one on 
the right of the entrance seen in the foreground of 
the bird's eye view. The building, given by Dr. and 
Mrs. Lupton and their son, our beloved benefactors, 
is the one with the tower just opposite on the left of 
the entrance. Lowry Hall, stands completed (1927) 
at the end of the main axis directly in front of the en- 
trance. The total cost of construction of the buildings 
shown in the above design with the landscape work 
required, will be approximately $3,000,000. The build- 
ing plan will be followed out in its entirety. 

HER SPIRITUAL AND INTELLECTUAL IDEALS 

But it is not so much the magnificent exterior of 
the institution about which the men who are founding 



20 Oglethorpe University 

Oglethorpe are most concerned, it is the spiritual and 
intellectual life of their university. To that end they 
have resolved to maintain a faculty and a curricu- 
lum that will be of the highest possible quality, their 
thought being excellence in every department. They 
will take the superb traditions of the old Oglethorpe 
and add the best of this present age to them. Doubt- 
less Oglethorpe will be a big university some day, 
but she is already a great one, and it is greatness 
rather than bigness which her founders crave most 
for her. 

FOUNDERS' BOOK 

In the Founders' Room at Oglethorpe there will be 
a Book containing the name of every man, woman and 
child who aided in the founding of the University, 
arranged alphabetically, by states. That Book will 
be accessible to every student and visitor who may 
want to know who it was from his or her home that 
took part in the doing of this, the greatest deed that 
has been attempted for our sons and daughters in 
this generation. The Book is not yet complete, be- 
cause the work is not yet finished, and each month is 
adding many to this role of honor, whose names will 
thus be preserved in the life and archives of Ogle- 
thorpe University forever. 

CLOCK AND CHIMES 

In the tower of the new building given by Dr. and 
Mrs. J. T. Lupton, is installed a clock and chimes, 
with two dials and night illumination, the gift of 
Mrs. H. Frederick Lesh, of Newton Center, Mass. It 
is interesting to note that this is the only tower clock 
in Atlanta and the only chimes on any college campus 
in Georgia. On the largest of the bells, which weighs 



Oglethorpe University 21 

a ton, is the following inscription. 

We were given by 

Grace Josephine Lesh 

That the hours at Oglethorpe 

Might be filled with 

Music and Harmony. 

THE FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY 

The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University, 
realizing the responsibility upon them of selecting a 
faculty whose spiritual and intellectual equipment 
should be capable of satisfying the tremendous de- 
mand of a really great institution of learning, has 
spared no effort or pains in securing a body of men 
who would not only possess that first requisite of a 
teacher, a great soul, but should also have those two 
other requisites of almost equal importance: power 
of imparting their ideals and knowledge, and intellec- 
tual acquirements adequate for their department. 
The most important elem^ent in education is the creat- 
ing in the student of an intense yearning for and de- 
light in the Good, the True and the Beautiful, and 
the first essential for the creation of such a spirit is 
the example set before him by the Faculty. The ob- 
ject of an Oglethorpe education is to furnish the stu- 
dent with deeper thoughts, finer emotions and nobler 
purposes to the end that he may more clearly under- 
stand, more fully enjoy and more excellentlj^ behave 
in the world. The University now has a corps of 
teachers unsurpassed in any institution of its size 
and age. The names are given in the order of their 
election.

IMMEDIATE PURPOSE AND SCOPE 

The purpose of Oglethorpe University is to offer 
courses of study leading to the higher academic and 
professional degrees, under a Christian environment, 
and thus to train young men who wish to become spe- 
cialists in professional and business life ^nd teach- 
ers in our High Schools and Colleges, and to supply 
the growing demand for specially equipped men in 
every department of human activity. 

Students who are looking forward to university 
work are invited to correspond with the President, in 
order that they may be putting themselves in line for 
the advanced courses which are to be offered. 

Adequate Library and Laboratory facilities are be- 
ing provided as the need for them arises. Free use 
will be made of the city of Atlanta, in itself a remark- 
able laboratory of industrial and scientific life, whose 
museums, libraries and municipal plants are at the 
disposal of our students for observation, inspection 
and investigation. 

A glance at the frontispiece of the catalogue, show- 
ing Bird's Eye View of the University, gives the stu- 
dent an idea of the quality of the buildings and the 
lay out of the campus. This campus consists of ap- 
proximately one hundred and seventy-five acres of 
land, not including an eighty acre lake which adjoins 
the northwestern corner of the campus. It is located on 
Peachtree Road, and immediately in front of the en- 
trance is the terminus of the Oglethorpe University 
street car line, and an attractive little stone station of 
the Southern Railway main line between Atlanta and 
Washington. The first building to be located on the 
campus, the Administration Building, contains the 
dining room in the basement, chemistry and physics 



Oglethorpe University 31 

lecture rooms and laboratories and the Bursar's of- 
fice and private apartments for young women attend- 
ing the college on the ground floor; the hospital and 
dormitories on the second and third floors. Lupton 
Hall consists of three separate structures which, com- 
bined, contain the library. President's office, class 
rooms. Assembly Hall seating approximately six hun- 
dred, equipped also as a school theatre for the presen- 
tation of student dramas, and in the basement basket- 
ball court, swimming pool, lockers and showers and 
quarters for the Oglethorpe University Press. This 
latter is equipped with a Babcock optimus press, lino- 
type machine and a couple of smaller presses with a 
number of type stands and other printing equipment 
given by a warm friend of the college. Lowry Hall 
houses the Lowry School of Banking and Commerce 
and is now ready for occupancy. It is largely a replica 
of old Corpus Christi College, Oxford, the alma mater 
of James Edward Oglethorpe. It contains class rooms 
and dormitories and will stand as a perpetual mem- 
orial to the generosity of Colonel R. J. Lowry and Em- 
ma Markham Lowry.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS 

In the Schools of Liberal Arts, Science, Business 

Administration, Literature and Journalism, 

And Education 

The requirement for entrance to the Academic 
Schools of Oglethorpe University is either a certifi- 
cate of qualification from an accredited High School, 
or an examination on the equivalent preparation. The 
candidates must present at least three units in Eng- 
lish and three units in mathematics. In the School 
of Liberal Arts, three units of Latin must also be of- 
fered; in the School of Science two years of language 
work are required. A unit represents a year's study 
in any subject in a secondary school, constituting ap- 
proximately a quarter of a full year's work. 

The authorities of Oglethorpe University are fully 
acquainted with the educational situation in the 
South and have not lost sight of the frequent insuf- 
ficiencies of preparation of prospective students 
brought about by inadequate high school facilities. It 
is the purpose of the University to make its degrees 
represent high attainment, but to furnish such facil- 
ities for students that this attainment will be fairly 
simple and easy. It is not our purpose by the adop- 
tion of specially high entrance requirements to drive 
away any students from our institution. Adequate 
arrangements will be made for aiding any student 
who may be behind in his preparation in so far as 
such aid is consistent with the collegiate require- 
ments.

The President of the University will gladly answer 
any inquiries as to further details of entrance re- 
quirements, upon request. An application blank will 
be found at the close of the catalogue. It is well for 
the prospective student to apply as early as possible. 
A blank for High School Certificate may be obtained 
by writing to the Registrar. 

Students who wish credit for college work done 
elsewhere must file with the Registrar a certificate 
from the institution in which the work was done. The 
institution must be one that is recognized by the 
Faculty of Oglethorpe University, and the work must 
be satisfactory to the professor of that department. 

SPECIAL STUDENTS 

Students over twenty years of age may be admit- 
ted for special study upon satisfying the Faculty as 
to their ability to do the work of the classes which 
they wish to enter. Such students may become reg- 
ular only by absolving all entrance requirements. 

COURSES OF INSTRUCTION AND REQUIRE- 
MENTS FOR DEGREES 

In the session of 1927-28 Oglethorpe University will 
offer courses in the undergraduate Classes of five 
schools leading to the customary academic degrees. 
The degree of Bachelor of Arts (B. A.) in the Classics 
will be conferred upon those students satisfactorily 
completing a four years' course as outlined below, 
based largely on the study of the "Humanities." The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Science will be conferred 
upon those students who satisfactorily complete a 
four years' course largely in scientific studies. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Literature will be given 
to those students who complete a course including 



Oglethorpe University 35 

work in languages, literature and journalism. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Commerce will be con- 
ferred upon those students who satisfactorily com- 
plete a full four years' course in studies relating par- 
ticularly to business administration and industrial 
life. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education will 
be conferred upon those students who complete the 
studies in the School of Education. 

By a careful study of the courses outlined below, 
the student will be easily able to make a choice most 
suitable to his tastes and probable future life. 

In general, it may be suggested that those stu- 
dents preparing to enter such professions as the min- 
istry or law, will choose the B. A. course in Classics; 
those looking forward to medicine, dentistry and other 
scientific work, the B. A. course in Science; those ex-

While each of these courses is so shaped as to in- 
fluence the student towards a certain end, colored 
largely by the type of studies, yet each course will 
be found "to include such subjects of general culture 
as are necessary to the education of a life as distin- 
guished from a living.

THE HONORS COURSE AT OGLETHORPE 

The Honors Course at Oglethorpe University has 
been planned to fill a very definite need of present day 
education. With the elective system in operation 
everywhere and with the multiplication of schools 
and departments and courses in our American uni- 
versites, the college student is frequently bewildered 
as to what subjects he should choose and what courses 
to pursue. Specialization also has gone so far in our 
institutions that young men, after studying hard for 
four years in one department or another, find that 
they have omitted many objects which, among the 
best educated, are considered essential to full culture. 
The President of the University has, therefore, pre- 
pared, and the Faculty and Executive Committee of 
the University have approved, the following course of 
study to meet this situation and supply the need aris- 
ing from it. The courses offered are designed to l^y 
a satisfactory foundation for the understanding and 
enjoyment of life. While they adequately prepare a 
student for any of the professions, in so far as col- 
lege work can do so, and for business life as well, yet 
they are not exclusively utilitarian. They are intend- 
ed to develop and sustain a great soul, to acquaint 
him with the fundamental lines of progress of the 
human race and place him in position to interpret life 
to his fellowmen. 

The difficulty of doing this adequately without in- 
cluding a larger number of studies and, therefore, 
more hours of work than the average student can 
successfully carry, is obvious. The course is designed 
only for the student whose preparation and ability are 
both above the average. In order to insure this con- 
dition a passing grade and general average not lower 



44 Oglethorpe University 

than 90 is necessary for its successful prosecution. 
Upon those students who complete the entire four 
years with a general average for the four years be- 
tween 90 and 95, the degree of Bachelor of Arts, Mag- 
no Cum Honore, is conferred. Upon any student com- 
pleting the course with a general average of 95 or 
more, the degree of Bachelor of Arts, Summo Cum 
Honore, is conferred. 

As the Honors Course requires for its pursuit un- 
usual mental ability and moral character, applicants 
must present evidence of exceptional preparation and 
superior mental tests. To this end, the President will 
accept for the course only those students who can 
qualify for the prescribed requirements. If at the 
end of the first term, any student in the Honors 
Course fails to make a grade of 90 or more he will be 
required to transfer to another course. 

It is well known to those best acquainted with the 
progress of education in the South that even the best 
of our Southern colleges and universities are approx- 
imately one year behind the best schools of the East 
and West. It is a regrettable fact that the Southern 
student who has finished the freshman work is just 
about ready to enter the freshman class in the best 
Eastern institutions. This is not the fault of our col- 
leges but of insufficient preparation in our high 
schools, and while this condition of affairs is being 
improved it will be many years before it is completely 
remedied. This course, which an earnest and intel- 
ligent student may take in five years and a brilliant 
student in four years, will offset this difference and 
will make it possible for our Southern boys and girls 
to acquire the same amount of information and do 
the same amount of work at college that is done by 



Oglethorpe University 45 

those graduating from the best institutions of the 
East and West. 

No substitutions or electives are allowed. The 
course must be taken as scheduled and in the order, 
by years, as stated. Students may, however, take 
some of the courses of the freshman year in the sum- 
mer term following the freshman year, and similarly 
for the other years' work. The time allowed for the 
completion of the work is not less than four years 
and not more than five. Failure to successfully com- 
plete the course does not in any way disqualify the 
student from securing full credits toward other de- 
grees oifered for all work successfully completed. He 
may then be graduated in any of the departments of 
the college as he may elect on the basis of such work 
as he has done. The courses themselves are as fol- 
lows, beginning with the Freshman year.

Mathematics 3 25 

The course in freshman mathematics guarantees a 
reasonably adequate equipment in that department. 
The course in Greek and Latin Etymology is designed 
to supply the student with a familiarity with scien- 
tific terms which he will need during the remainder 
of his college work, not only, but throughout his 
whole life. Lists of common scientific terms are 
studied and their derivation explained. The course 



46 Oglethorpe University 

of English acquaints the student with the form and 
structure of the language that he speaks, and drills 
him in the effective use of it. The course in Latin 
begins at the beginning. The student is taught to 
read Latin as rapidly as possible. Any student who 
has already had in a standard high school as many 
as two years in Latin may substitute another sub- 
ject instead of this course from the list which fol- 
lows. The course in physics needs no explanation. 
The course in history begins with the first civilization 
in the city-states of the Tigro-Euphrates Valley and 
is a foundation for other historical studies that fol- 
low. The course in physiology is designed to give the 
student an adequate idea of the house in which he 
lives during the remainder of his days. The course 
in the Old Testament runs parallel partly with that 
of Freshman history and lays the foundation for his 
moral and ethical thinking. In addition to the above, 
the student is required to take regular work in phy- 
sical culture. 

In the Sophomore year, the courses are as follows : 

Hrs. New Testament 2 

English 3 Bookkeeping 3 

Latin 3 Economics 3 

Modern Language 3 Physical Culture 

Biology 5 — 

History 3 25 

The study of English is continued and the same 
modern language that was elected for the freshman 
year must be continued in the sophomore year. The 
course in Latin covers Caesar, first term, selections 
from Vergil, second term, some of the Odes of Horace 
in the third term. The course in Biology makes it 
possible for the student to understand the life pro- 



Oglethorpe University 47 

cesses of the earth. The course in history covers the 
story of Greece and Rome; The course in the New 
Testament is a study of the life and teachings of 
Jesus Christ, without a knowledge of which no man 
can be considered an educated man. The course in 
economics is fundamental to any conception of the 
business and political world. To this is added the 
work in bookkeeping and elementary accounting 
which will enable our student to interpret the statis- 
tical part of any enterprise or business with which he 
may be connected. To these, also, is added the work 
in physical culture. 

The courses in the Junior year are as follows : 

Hrs. Psychology 3 

English 3 Sociology 3 

Modern Language 3 Physical Culture 

Chemistry 5 — 

History 3 26 

Commercial Law 3 

Geology 3 

In the Junior year, the course in English broadens 
still further the student's knowledge of literature. 
The second modern language is taken up. The work 
in chemistry interprets to him the constitution of the 
world in which he is living. The course in history 
covers the story of continental Europe in its broad 
outlines. The work in Commercial Law lays the foun- 
dations for intelligent management of his business af- 
fairs. A year in geology, including a short review of 
paleontology, reveals to him the marvelous story of 
the earth on which he is living. A year in Psychology 
acquaints him with the processes of his own soul, and 
the work in Sociology orientates him with respect to 



48 Oglethorpe University 

society. To these also is added the work in physical 
culture. 

In the Senior year, the courses are as follows: 
Hrs. 

English 3 Anthropology 3 

History 3 Marketing 3 

Mod. Language 3 Cosmic History 1 

Political Science 3 Physical Culture 1 

Astronomy 3 — 

History of Art 3 26 

The work for the seniors in English, while it may 
vary its subject from time to time, is designed to 
widen our student's knowledge of the finest creative 
work in his language. The course in history covers 
the story of England and America. The second mod- 
ern language begun in the junior year is continued. 
A year is spent in the study of civics and politics to 
prepare our student for an intelligent exercise of his 
duty as a citizen. A year in astronomy gives to him 
a better grasp of the universe and bestows upon him 
a sense of direction and orientation with respect to 
his environment. His work in anthropology covers 
the whole long story of the development of man. The 
work in the history of art includes architecture, sculp- 
ture, painting and music, and by acquainting him with 
the great works of the past enables him to enjoy and 
create art during his life time. The study of market- 
ing introduces him to the whole vast field of distri- 
buting the products of the world's industry. To this 
is added the course in Cosmic History, a sort of in- 
troduction to life by the President of the college; and 
che work in physical exercise. 

The following special courses may be chosen in lieu 
of such subjects in the freshman year as the student 




The Entrance to Lupton Hall. 
Above the doorivay is engraved the following inscription: 
"Till this I learned, that he who huildeth well

Students in the Honors Course whose general aver- 
age for five successive terms is as high as 93 will re- 
ceive the Coat of Arms Sweater, these conditions be- 
ing the same as those outlined for ail students at the 
college. 

The University recognizes the fact that a vast ac- 
cumulation of information even though it be organiz- 
ed by a well-trained intellect is utterly incomplete and 
even dangerous unless the whole is controlled by a fine 
moral purpose and utilized in excellent personal con- 
duct. It is a tradition of the University that a close 
association should be maintained between education 
and righteousness, a fixed alliance of morality with 
enlightenment. We feel that to furnish the highest 
intellectual training to liars, thieves, adulturers, or 
crooks would be calamitous to society w^hose leaders 
and examples they would be. 

All Honor Students at Oglethorpe, therefore, are 
required to observe the following laws: 

First, the law of personal honesty, forbidding all 
cheating on examinations, all thefts, minor and ma- 
jor. 

The law of personal truthfulness, which forbids all 



60 Oglethorpe University 

deceit of every kind whatsoever and particularly in a 
form of misrepresentation or lying. 

The lav/ of personal purity which commands perfect 
continence. 

The law of loyalty which aligns the student Math 
all that is best in the traditions of his Alma Mater 
and pledges his active support thereto, above any sub- 
sidiary college organization such as societies, frater- 
nities, clubs and others. This covers also abstention 
from all forms of hazing, and a pledge of his support 
to the faculty in preventing same. 

The law of self-control which, while partly covered 
in the law of personal purity, also includes all forms 
of drunkenness, gambling, and similar lapses from the 
highest ideals of the moral law. 

The law of reverence: "Thou shalt not take the 
name of the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord will 
not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain." 

No student who violates the above laws may con- 
tinue as an honor student at Oglethorpe University. 

At the close of the student's course, after he has 
won either the magno cum honore or the summo cum 
honore grade he will also be presented by the Presi- 
dent with a medallion of solid gold on which are em- 
blazoned the Coat of Arms of the University and her 
seal. 

GRADUATE SCHOOL 

It is the purpose of Oglethorpe University to de- 
velop a thoroughly excellent Graduate School, offering 
courses in all departments leading to the Master's de- 
gree. In supplying this need, which has for a long 
while been acutely felt in the South, the management 



Oglethorpe University B1 

of the University will be content with only the very 
highest grade of work and facilities. 

Courses leading to the Master's degree in certain 
departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this 
catalogue under the appropriate department heading. 
This degree is based on that of Bachelor of Arts of 
Oglethorpe University or of some other approved in- 
stitution. The candidate must have an aggregate of 
twelve hours of graduate work, two terms to be 
spent in residence here. But the degree is not guar- 
anteed at the end of a fixed period of time. A certain 
amount of work must be accomplished, and the qual- 
ity of it must be such as to satisfy the Professors 
concerned and the whole Faculty. During the past 
year the University has established several centers 
for study in the city of Atlanta. More than fifty of 
the Atlanta teachers have been enrolled in these 
courses. At each center as much as six hours' work 
per week has been done, this making possible the at- 
tainment of an incompleted Bachelor's or Master's 
degree. This opportunity will be continued during 
the next year. 

In this connection, the prospective student will be 
interested in learning that all Professors chosen as 
the heads of departments in Oglethorpe University 
must have obtained the highest academic degree offer- 
ed in that department. This fact is mentioned in or- 
der to indicate the earnest determination of the 
Board of Directors of the University that her Fac- 
ulty shall include only men of the highest intellectual 
attainment as well as men of great teaching power 
and strong personal character. 

The President of the University will be pleased to 
answer any inquiries as to graduate courses to be of- 
fered. 



52 Oglethorpe University 

PRE-PROFESSIONAL COURSES 

Students who are contemplating the profession of 
law, medicine or dentistry and who do not desire to 
study for an academic degree, are allowed to take 
such work as will prepare them for entrance to profes- 
sional schools. In addition to the required high school 
units for college entrance, professional students must 
complete one or more years of college work, accord- 
ing to the requirements of the institution that they 
are planning to enter. The attention of the prospec- 
tive student, however, should be called to the fact 
that each year finds it more necessary for the profes- 
sional man to have a thorough foundation for his pro- 
fessional studies, and the professional schools are be- 
coming more strict in their requirements for entrance. 
Particularly is this the case in medicine where the 
best colleges require a diploma from a standard col- 
lege for entrance. Having this in mind Oglethorpe 
University may discontinue its two year pre-med- 
ical course and we strongly advise our students of 
medicine to have their college diploma safely in hand 
before they begin their professional studies. The 
course which we recommend for them is that leading 
to Bachelor of Arts in Science, outlined on pages 37 
and 38. As a suggestion for those students who plan 
to enter law school and dental college, undertaking a 
two-year pre-professional course, the following out- 
line of studies is recommended:

THE PRESIDENT'S COURSE 
Cosmic History by President Jacobs 

In the endeavor to give to the graduates of the Uni- 
versity a course that will co-ordinate the knowledge 
they have obtained of such subjects as Biology, Ge- 
ology, Paleontology, etc., with their work in Bible, 
Ethics and Philosophy, the President of the Univer- 
sity will meet the Senior Class one hour per week, 
Tuesday, at 10:30, in a seminar covering a story 
of human life following the broad outlines of Astron- 
omy, Geology, Paleontology, Embryology, Anthropol- 
ogy and Archaeology. The course closes with a study 



54 Oglethorpe University 

of the first ten chapters of Genesis in relation to mod- 
ern discoveries. It is especially designed to give the 
graduates of Oglethorpe University a conception of 
the harmony between religion and modern science and 
is required of all Seniors. It is believed that this 
work of co-ordination of modern science with relig- 
ion can best be done in the senior class, to the end 
that in harmonizing the truths learned their faith 
may not be unsettled. 

ASTRONOMY

property of the uncle of the donor who was an alum- 
nus of the old Oglethorpe and is named in honor of 
them both.

BIBLE AND PHILOSOPHY 

The course in English Bible extends over two years ; 
it is required for the B. A. degree in all five depart- 
ments, and must be pursued by every under-graduate 
student. 

The first year is devoted to the Old Testament, the 
second to the New Testament, together with the in- 
tervening period. The study will include the mastery 
of the history contained in the Bible, an analysis of 
each book, and such other matters as are required 
for the proper understanding of the work. It will 
be treated not from a sectarian point of view, nor as 
mere history or literature. The aim will be to im- 
part such a knowledge of the subject as every intelli- 
gent man should possess, enabling him to read his 
Bible with pleasure and profit. 

The effort will be made to give the students the 
proper defense of seeming difliiculties in the Bible, 
both for their own benefit, and that they may be able 
to meet the objections of unbelievers.

the same as for the School of Liberal Arts, except 
that Ancient Language is not required. Modern 
Language, especially Spanish or French, is strongly 
advised. Shorthand and typewriting are neither re- 
quired nor later counted toward a degree, but are 
strongly recommended. 

The graduate work is based upon the Bachelor's 
Degree from an accredited institution.

SECRETARIAL COURSES 

The secretarial course of study is designed for the 
following: (a) Persons who wish to enter the business 
world in the capacity of skilled assistants to those in 
executive positions; (b) Teachers of commercial sub- 
jects in high schools; (c) Office managers and the 
like; (d) Young ladies who are preparing for work 
of a literary nature, or as social secretaries. 

In the work in modern foreign languages, not less 



84 OGLOTHORPB UNIVBR31TY 

than two years of work will be accepted for gradua- 
tion. In case only a reading knowledge is desired, on 
the successful completion of the first two units, a 
second language may be taken up. 

For those preparing to teach in high schools it is 
recommended that from the electives nine hours of 
Education be taken, as this will qualify graduates for 
the State Professional Teacher's Certificate. 

At the close of the first two years of work, provid- 
ed a record has been established for scholarship, 
character, and reliability, on request a Certificate of 
Proficiency will be granted. This is not to encourage 
a premature capitalization of ability, but more as an 
incentive to complete the four years of work for the 
diploma and the degree. 

For outline of courses see page 41.

THE SCHOOL OF PHYSICAL CULTURE 

Perhaps the most remarkable single development 
in the modern educational world is the possession by 
our colleges and universities of complete control of 
the greatest of all sports. American college football 
is the most interesting, most exciting, most manly, 
most instructive and most profitable game ever play- 
ed by men. It, more than any other, furnishes to its 
devotees something of the moral equivalent of war, 
and such a hold has it taken on the public that they 
pour out their tens of thousands of dollars to witness 
inter-collegiate games in vast stadia and bowls erect- 
ed largely for the purpose at a cost reaching into 
the millions. It is a momentous thing for the aca- 
demic world to have control of the American equiv- 
alent of the Olympic games and the contests of the 
Arena, and as we watch the never ceasing enlarge- 
ment of interest, finance, equipment and importance 
of this part of college work it must be perfectly ap- 
parent that the very life of a college depends and will 
more and more depend upon its method of handling 
this fact which is at once a challenge and an oppor- 
tunity. 

And, hand in hand with football, go baseball, bas- 
ket-ball, boating, track, and indeed the whole physical 
well-being of the vast American student-body. 

Passing by as somnolent those colleges that side- 
step the fact by denying their students the privilege 
of intercollegiate sports and those that permissively 
decree a Students' Athletic Association which as- 
sumes control of coach, games, and often of "Faculty 
Directors of Athletics," we come to those institu- 
tions that face the situation with wide open eyes. 



90 Oglethorpe University 

The attitude of Oglethorpe University to all ath- 
letics is based upon the recognition of the physical 
training of the human body as a college study. 

It is presumed that a matter of such overwhelm- 
ing importance to college life as athletics and of such 
transcendent interest to the public that it commands 
their time and purses at will, is a matter worth study- 
ing seriously and deserving to be ranked with Greek 
and Poultry Keeping, 

Therefore Oglethorpe University has founded her 
School of Physical Culture. 

Its purpose is two-fold: To train, protect and de- 
velop the bodies of all the students of the University 
and to offer a special school where those who deserve 
it may receive special training, equipping them for 
positions as Physical Directors in Y. M. C. A.'s, in 
the Army, and in other schools, colleges and univer- 
sities. 

As a school for the special preparation of students 
for positions as physical directors and coaches in Y. 
M. C. A.'s, the Army and other schools and univer- 
sities, a regular curriculum has been arranged offer- 
ing instruction in the following subjects, the comple- 
tion of which will lead to an appropriate certificate or 
degree. 

1. Physiology — A first-year course in the study 
of the human body, one hour per week — Fall, Winter 
Spring and Summer Terms. Required of all Fresh- 
men. Prerequisite for all courses enumerated below. 
Includes studies in Sanitation, Hygiene and First Aid. 

Professor Hunt 

2. Mass Athletics — A study of methods used in 



Oglethorpe University 91 

the A. E. F., Play Athletics, study of muscles, their 
development and health. Study of various develop- 
ment systems. Three hours per week. Required of 
all students who do not elect courses 3-10. 

Mr. Robertson 

3. Track — Study and practice of ail track exercise, 
running, jumping, vaulting and javelin throwing, 
hurdling and relay race. Three hours per week. Elec- 
tive. 

Mr. Anderson 

4. Football— Science and practice of this geatest 
of games, study of formations, plays, strategy, man- 
agement. 

Mr. Robertson 

5. Baseball — Science and practice of the most 
widely popular of all American games. Spring term 
only. Twelve hours per week. 

Mr. Anderson 

6. Tennis — Study and practice. Fall, Winter, 
Spring and Summer Terms. Three hours per week. 

Mr. Anderson 

7. Aquatic Sports — Study and practice — Svv'im- 
ming, rowing, crew work. Fall, Winter, Spring and 
Summer Terms. 

Mr. Anderson 

8. Fencing — Swordsmanship in the foil, sabre and 
rapier; also boxing. Fall, Winter and Spring terms. 
Two hours per week. 

Prof. Roney 



92 Oglethorpe University 

9. History of Play and Games— The genesis and 
development of modern games, including Courses 3- 
9 ; also of chess, draughts, ten pins, etc. Fall, Winter 
and Spring Terms. One hour per week. 

Dr. Libby 

10. Arts and Science Group — Comprising such 
electives from courses offered in the Schools of Arts 
and Sciences, Literature, and Commerce as may be 
elected to complete requirements of S. I. A. A., for 
eligibility in intercollegiate games. 

An appropriate letter will be given all students 
making the University team in any of the above 
classes, 3-9, inclusive. 

Every human being should be taught to play with 
his fellow-beings. Every student should have daily 
exercise. These two simple but fundamental axioms 
are the basis for all work in this department. 

The munificent gift of fifty thousand dollars by Mr. 
and Mrs. Harry P. Hermance to Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity for an athletic field has made possible the im- 
mediate inauguration of this plan, which is founded 
upon the study from a college standpoint of psychol- 
ogy, hygiene, sanitation, first-aid work, etc. It fur- 
ther emphasizes the necessity of careful medical 
supervision of all athletics and the adaptation to each 
individual student of special forms of exercise. 

One of the most important features is the requiring 
of every student to take some form of physical ex- 
ercise daily under proper medical or tutorial guid- 
ance. In this way those who need it most would be 
most advantaged, and the chief failure of the athletic 
program of our average American college would be 



Oglethorpb University 9S 

obviated, for it is a notorious fact that most of our 
institutions develop a small number of trained ath- 
letes in football, baseball, basket-ball, etc., while the 
great mass of students do little more than sit on the 
bleachers and yell. 

And the building of the new athletic field given by 
Mr. and Mrs. Hermance makes possible the inaugura- 
tion at Oglethorpe of a complete system of physical 
culture for all students. It will include not only the 
great athletic features such as football, baseball, bas- 
ket-ball, etc., but also many interesting track exer- 
cises, discus and javelin throv/ing, jumping, vaulting 
and, in fact, all of the various numbers to be found 
at our intercollegiate track meets. It is the purpose 
of Oglethorpe University as quickly as circumstances 
may permit, to enter, and, in addition, to develop a 
strong boating crew on Silver Lake. 

The University has been especially fortunate in 
enjoying the services of Mr. Frank B. Anderson, one 
of the best known coaches in the South, who has had 
charge of Athletics at Oglethorpe University and who 
has been advanced to the directorship of the depart- 
ment of physical culture. Mr. Anderson has merited 
and won not only a great reputation as a coach, but 
as a clean, fine friend of young men, and there is no 
man in the whole of America more loved by his boys. 

We are especially fortunate also in being able to 
announce that Mr. Harry Robertson, famous all- 
American football star, will coach our football team 
and teach Courses Nos. 2 and 4. The University, of 
course, is proud of his record and happy in the know- 
ledge that our boys will have as their coach a man 
who is an expert in that department with hardly an 



94 Oglethorpe University 

equal in this country, and those of us who have 
charge of the moral and mental life of the University, 
feel especially happy in having at the head of this 
fascinating department of our work, a splendid out- 
standing man whose personal influence with the stu- 
dents will mean so much in the building of character 
and the enforcing of every moral and religious pre- 
cept. It is not going too far to say that the teams 
at Oglethorpe will be as well coached next year and 
thereafter as any teams on the American continent, 
for there are no two finer men at the head of athletics 
whether it be as coaches or as men, than the two who 
head this department at Oglethorpe. 

Other instructors will be added as this work may 
require. 

UNIVERSITY EXPENSES 

Board and Room Rent 

The dormitory facilities of Oglethorpe University 
are the safest and most comfortable of cognate insti- 
tutions in the South. All the permanent buildings of 
the University will be like those now finished, which 
are believed to be absolutely fireproof, being con- 
structed of steel, concrete and granite with parti- 
tions of brick and hollow tile. 

The prices named below are based upon three 
grades of rooms. The first of these comprises a tem- 
porary dormitory erected by the Government in 1918 ; 
the second, the entire third floor of the Administra- 
tion building, the third floor of Lupton Hall, and the 
second and third floors of Lowry Hall, divided into 
individual rooms, with general toilet and bath room 



Oglethorpe University 95 

on the same floor. Each room contains a lavatory 
furnishing hot and cold water. The third grade is 
that of the second floor of the Administration build- 
ing and is composed of suites of rooms, each suite con- 
taining a bedroom, bath and study. The price charged 
includes first-class board, steam heat, electric lights, 
water and janitor's service, and all rooms are furnish- 
ed adequately and substantially. Every room in the 
dormitory contains ample closet space. The rooms 
are large, airy, safe and comfortable. 

The furniture is of oak and is the same for all 
rooms, including chiffonier, study-table, single bed, 
spring and mattress for each student. * 

Room linen and bed clothing will be furnished by 
the student. Applications for rooms should be filed 
at once. For reservation of room inclose $5.00 reser- 
vation fee, to be credited on first payment. 

The expenses at Oglethorpe University are made 
as low as the quality of instruction, of rooming ac- 
commodations and of table fare will permit. No fees 
such as matriculation, library, hospital, contingent, 
athletic, etc.,, are charged. To Day Students the 
only charge made is that of tuition which is $82.50 
per term, as covered by the college calendar. 

For students boarding in the dormitories of the 
University the following charges are made: 

* Government Building $165.00 per term. 

Administration Building, third floor; Lupton Hall, 
third floor; and Lowry Hall third floor — $190.00 per 
term. 



* The rooms in the Government building have no closets, are 



96 Oglethorpe University 

Lowry Hall, second floor $192.50 per term. 

Administration Building, second floor, $210.00 per 
term. 

All University charges are payable quarterly in ad- 
vance except by special arrangement. For absences 
no rebate is made on board for less than one week, 
nor on room rent and tuition for less than one term. No 
rebate is made on absences caused by temporary sus- 
pension by action of the faculty. All Freshmen, other 
than day students and young women, are required to 
room on the campus except upon the written request 
of their parents or guardians. It will be observed that 
the total cost for the entire year, including tuition, 
table board and room rent, heat, light, water and 
janitor service and all other college dues range from 
$495.00 per year of approximately eight and a half 
months, (three terms) upward — according to room- 
ing accommodations. The student should bring his 
own bedding and personal linen. Books may be pur- 
chased from the Student Co-op or in the city of At- 
lanta and will cost approximately $10.00 per term. 

Upon assuming possession of his room each student 
is given a statement showing the general condition 
of the room and of the articles of furniture contained 
therein. He is required at the end of each term — 
or at the end of the college year — upon request of the 
Superintendent, to restore the property to the con- 
dition in which he received it by paying the actual 
cost of replacements and repairs as made or estimated 
as necessary to be made by the college officials. When 

more simply furnished and as practically no charge is made 
for room -rent, light, heat, water and janitor service, the stu- 
dents rooming in that building are expected to take care of 
their own rooms. 



Oglethorpe University 97 

the room is occupied by more than one student the 
cost of repairs is divided in proportion to responsi- 
bility. 

SELF HELP 

Approximately fifteen per cent of the Oglethorpe 
student body are "working their way through col- 
lege" in whole or in part. 

It is the intention of the authorities of the Univer- 
sity to see that a way is provided as far as possible 
for the assistance of any student who may be in pe- 
cuniary need and yet desirous of prosecuting his 
studies at Oglethorpe. A special Faculty Committee 
will co-operate with students to that end. 

As a general rule it is best for the student that he 
should be able to devote all of his time to his aca- 
demic duties, but where circumstances require it, 
many students may undertake various tasks, pay- 
ment for which materially aids them in meeting their 
expenses. 

For further information address the President, 
Oglethorpe University. 

SPECIAL LOAN FUND 

By the generosity of a good friend who does not 
wish his name mentioned, the University is able to 
lend a limited sum to deserving students who would 
otherwise be unable to prosecute their studies at 
Oglethorpe. Further details upon application.

The munificent generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Harry 
P. Hermance in giving to Oglethorpe an Athletic Sta- 
dium, to be the finest in the South, makes feasible the 
development of all forms of field sports, including not 
only the great games of football and baseball, but also 
vaulting, jumping, discus and javelin throwing, track 
work, etc. Physical culture for all students will be re- 
quired. 

A sanely encouraging attitude is taken by the Uni- 
versity toward intercollegiate athletics, and Ogle- 
thorpe University is acquitting herself well in that 
sphere of her educational life. 

SILVER LAKE 

In addition to those sports common to all well 
equipped colleges in the South, Oglethorpe University 
is the fortunate possessor of a beautiful lake covering 
eighty acres located conveniently to the University 
campus, with a part of its shore set aside for a univer- 
sity boat house. This will enable the institution to 
add a crew to its list of athletic sports. The lake 
is admirably suited for boating, rowing, swimming 
and fishing. 

The policy of Oglethorpe University includes the 
care of the physical life of our students as a matter 
of large importance. Regular instruction, looking to 
symmetrical development of the entire man will be 
given in the Athletic Department of the University, 
under competent medical guidance. Special attention 
is at present given to outdoor athletics. Adequate 



Oglethorpe University &9 

provision is being made for football and baseball 
grounds, tennis courts, etc. Work has been begun 
on the Hermance Stadium. 

UNIVERSITY STORE 

One of the interesting features of university life at 
Oglethorpe is the Petrel Shop operated by a group of 
students, under the superintendence of the Faculty. 

In the store are kept all the necessary college acces- 
sories. Any ordinary purchase may thus be made 
most conveniently, as full lines of goods answering 
the various college requirements are constantly kept 
on hand. 

MORAL AND RELIGIOUS ATMOSPHERE 

The ability of a college or university to develop 
worthy character in its students depends largely upon 
that indefinable quality called "college atmosphere." 
As a mother, she breathes her own soul into her boys. 
They inherit all she has been through, all of labor 
and strength and faith and prayer. If her judgments 
have been bought out with money they inherit that; 
if with blood they inherit that. Every storm through 
which she has passed strengthens them for their own 
conflicts in the days that are to come. 

Oglethorpe is a daughter of battle and faith and 
prayer. God alone built her, touching the hearts of 
multitudes of His children at the voice of her call. 
Alone of all the prominent ante-bellum universities 
she died for her ideals and alone of all the universi- 
ties of America, God has raised her from the dead. 

By her every battle, her every faith, her every 



100 Oglethorpe University 

triumph, she has learned what things are really worth 
while and what hand really to lean upon. She will 
tell her children of Him. 

SPECIAL RELIGIOUS SERVICES 

Regular assembly exercises, whic hthe students are 
required to attend, are conducted by each of the mem- 
bers of the faculty in turn. The student life at Ogle- 
thorpe is also blessed by the activities of the Y. M. 
C. A., and frequent sermons and addresses by visit- 
ing pastors and evangelists. A Sunday School Class 
has been started by the students themselves, which 
grew to a membership of over eighty. 

LIBRARIES 

By the generosity of many friends, so great as to 
be almost unparalleled, the University received dur- 
ing the first year of its life approximately ten thou- 
sand volumes for the library. These consist of stand- 
ard works in Literature, History and Science, with 
many valuable reference works in special depart- 
ments. The Private Libraries of Dr. Sellers in 
Science, and of Dr. Nicolassen in the Classics, are 
both available for the use of the students in these 
departments. The policy of the institution is to let 
no year go without the enlargement of the library. 
A competent librarian is in charge and the rooms 
will be open during the year of 1926-27 approximately 
ten hours per day. The Public Library is also avail- 
able for the use of our students. 

KING LIBRARY OF ENGLISH 

By the splendid generosity of Dr. Cheston King 
the University has been given a Library of English 



Oglethorpe University 



101 



incomparably the finest south of Washington. The 
volumes for this library, including some seventeen 
thousand books and pamphlets, have been received, 
and are now available for graduate work. 

OGLETHORPE COAT-OF-ARMS 

Among the unique honors offered at the University 
is the presentation of a sweater with the Coat-of- 
Arms blazoned thereon, which will be awarded in the 
future under the terms of the following resolution 
unanimously adopted by the Faculty of the Univer- 
sity, upon recommendation of the President: 

"Resolved, that on and after September 1st, 1922, 
the Coat-of~Arms of Oglethorpe University shall be 
given to those students carrying a minimum of fifteen 
hours weekly, of excellent personal character and 
conduct, whose general average of all the courses 
taken during five preceding consecutive terms shall 
have been not less than 93, or who, in lieu of said 
general average, shall have so distinguished them- 
selves in some intellectual, creative, or constructive 
accomplishment as to entitle them thereto in the 
judgment of the Faculty."

THE PHI KAPPA DELTA (Honorary) 

The Phi Kappa Delta was organized in 1920. Only- 
students of the Junior and Senior class are eligible. 
The qualifications are scholarship and character. 

THE OGLETHORPE IDEA 

Quality is the word that expresses the Oglethorpe 
idea — quality in location, in climate, in campus, in 
architecture, in student character, in college life, in 
athletics and sports, in faculty, in curriculum and in 
religion and morals. Every one of these we offer at 
Oglethorpe. 

Located in the commercial and educational capital 
of the South, with an unrivaled climate, on the most 
elegant street of that city, on a most beautiful cam- 
pus of over one hundred and eighty acres of woodland 
and meadow, including an eighty-two acre lake which 
belongs to our students for swimming, boating and 
fishing, the physical advantages offered by Ogle- 
thorpe University are unsurpassed anywhere in the 
section. 

One by one a splendid body of buildings is being 
erected on its campus. Every one of them will be 
of granite trimmed with limestone and covered with 
variegated slates. All of them will be as fire-proof 
as human skill can make them and as commodious 
and comfortable as our architects can plan them. They 
will be like the first buildings already erected, which 
are believed to be the safest, most beautiful and 
most efficient college or university buildings in the 
Southeast.

THE OGLETHORPE SITE— ATLANTA 

The attractions of the city of Atlanta as an educa- 
tional center are fast making it one of the great in- 
tellectual dynamos of the nation. Gifted with a soft, 
Southern mountain climate, convenient of access to 
the entire nation over its many lines of railway, 
known everywhere as the center of Southern activ- 
ities, she draws to herself as to a magnet the great 
minds of the nation and the world. Hither come lec- 
turers, musicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors, 
teachers and officials of the United States. An in- 
tellectual atmosphere created by such conditions and 
the frequent opportunity of contact with these lead- 
ers in all branches of human activity, offered fre- 
quently to our students, give Oglethorpe University 
an advantage of position and of opportunity which 
she will cultivate to the uttermost. Facilities for 
hearing and meeting the great musicians and authors 
and public speakers and the leaders in all spheres of 
intellectual activity will be offered our students. The 
tremendous influence of such contact upon the young 
lives committed to us will be felt in increased ambi- 
tion and redoubled determination to perform, them- 
selves, their duty to their race and their God. 

THE SILENT FACULTY AT OGLETHORPE 

It is not going too far to say that the aesthetic 
tastes and home habits of many young men are ruined 
at college by the cheap and unattractive furnishings 
of their rooms and the ugly forbidding architecture 
of the buildings, whose walls often deface their cam- 
pus. The architecture of an institution of learning 



OOLBTHORPB UNIVERSITY 105 

should be a constant source of delight and inspira- 
tion to its students, teaching quietly but surely the 
highest ideals of life. Indeed all those qualities of 
soul we know as honesty, solidity, dignity, durability, 
reverence and beauty may be expressed in the face 
of a building as surely as in that of a man, and are 
so expressed on the Oglethorpe campus. 

Not less important are the personal surroundings of 
the student's room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped 
apartments have exactly the same influence on the 
soul of a boy that cheap, ugly and ill-equipped hu- 
man companions have. That is why the rooms at 
Oglethorpe are handsomely furnished. The sons of 
the poor are entitled to the information and inspira- 
tion such surroundings offer, and the sons of the rich 
will deteriorate without them. 

In brief the college education that does not teach 
a love of beauty and tidiness and what is popularly 
called "decency," is essentially and dangerously de- 
fective. 

This is the special work of the silent faculty at 
Oglethorpe. 



106 Oglethorpe University 

THE EXCEPTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES OF OUR 
PERSONAL ATTENTION 

Young men who desire to enjoy the daily personal 
contact and instruction of the heads of departments 
will note with interest that Oglethorpe offers excep- 
tional opportunities of that nature. It is well known 
that in all our large institutions only the upper class- 
ment come in any close contact with the full Profes- 
sors, who as heads of departments occupy their time 
in other matters than educating Freshmen. 

We believe in giving our Freshmen the best wa 
have, and they will be taught by men who have 
taught in or had offered them, chairs in the greatest 
universities of America. This will be a permanent 
policy at Oglethorpe. 

PHYSICAL TRAINING 

All students of all classes are required to take two 
hours a week of Physical Training. This is intended 
to keep the body in good condition, and is especially 
designed for the benefit of those students who do not 
take part in football, baseball, etc., but who need 
some stimulus to pay attention to their physical well 
being. 

INFIRMARY 

The University maintains at all times an excellent 
infirmary, with a nurse in attendance, for the prompt 
treatment of accidents and of such cases of sickness 
as may occur. By this means prolonged and serious 
illness can often be prevented. During the recent in- 
fluenza epidemic vigorous measures were taken at 
once, with the result that, while there were a rela- 
tively small number of cases there were no fatalities. 



Oglethokpb University 107 

There is a University physician who can be secured 
on short notice when his services are needed. 

The University makes no charge to the students 
for infirmary service which includes also the attend- 
ance of the college physician in the infirmary. In 
case of special illness requiring operations or the ser- 
vices of specialists, while the University frequently 
is able to secure reduced charges for our students, yet 
we assume no responsibility beyond such services as 
our college physician and college infirmary are able 
to render. 

EXAMINATIONS AND REPORTS 

Examinations will be held once each term, and re- 
ports of the students' standing will be issued four 
times per year. 

PUBLIC UTILITIES 

Oglethorpe University has the double advantage of 
being located in the suburbs of Atlanta, so far out 
as not to be subject to the distractions of city life, yet 
so near in as to enjoy all the public utilities of a gi-eat 
city. Among these are city water, electric lights, 
city trolley line, telephone and telegraph service, and 
in addition thereto the University has its own post- 
office, express office and railway station, all known as 
Oglethorpe University, Georgia. 

DIRECTIONS TO NEW STUDENTS 

Students coming to Oglethorpe University from a 
distance should remember that Oglethorpe University 
has its own station on the main line of the Southern 
Railway between Atlanta and Washington. Tickets 



108 Oglethorpe University 

may be purchased and baggage checked to Ogle- 
thorpe University, Georgia, the station being imme- 
diately in front of the campus. Students coming to 
Atlanta over other lines may either re-check their 
baggage to the University station, or may have it 
delivered at a special rate by the Atlanta Baggage 
& Cab Company. In using the latter method mention 
should always be made of the special students' rate 
at the time the order is given. 

WOMAN'S BOARD 

One of the most remarkable gatherings, even in 
this city of remarkable gatherings, was the assemb- 
ling of approximately two hundred of the represen- 
tative women of the city of Atlanta at the home of 
Mrs. Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday afternoon, Nov- 
ember 25, 1916, to organize a Woman's Board for 
Oglethorpe University. 

The purpose of the Board is to aid the University 
in every wise and efficient way, with counsel of and 
guidance by the proper authorities of the Institution. 
Already more than four hundred of the finest work- 
ers and most representative women of the city have 
offered their services and joined the organization. 
Their activities are directed toward the support and 
development of Oglethorpe in every phase of its 
growth and activities. Each of the ladies is assigned 
to the committee on which she feels best able to serve. 
These committees cover the various departments of 
the University, and among them are: Ways and 
Means, Finance, Grounds, Press, Entertainment, 
Hospital, Music, Library, Arts, Refreshments, Trans- 
portation, and such other committees as it may seem 
wise to the Board from time to time to appoint. 



Oglethorpe University 109 

The authorities of the University welcome the for- 
mation of this organization with the greatest joy. 
The mere fact that they have promised a devoted 
allegiance to the enterprise has its own genuine val- 
ue, but those who know the women of Atlanta, with 
their marvelous capacity for earnest and consecrated 
work directed by a swift and accurate intelligence, 
will realize what must be the results of the efficient 
aid which they are giving to the Institution. 

The Woman's Board has established a permanent 
endowment fund and is being incorporated under the 
laws of Georgia in preparation for handling funds 
donated or bequeathed to the University through the 
Woman's Board. 

Officers and Chairmen of the various committees 
have been unanimously chosen as follows: 

Mrs. E. Rivers, President; Mrs Charles A. Conklin, 
First Vice-President; Mrs. Frank Inman, Second Vice- 
President; Mrs. J. H. Porter, Third Vice-President; 
Mrs. W. A. Speer, Fourth Vice-President; Mrs. Gra-

withheld by request, a fine driveway has been con- 
structed from the University to Peachtree Road; it 
is called "The Maud Jacobs Driveway," in honor of 

the first President of the Woman's Board.

ILLUSTRATED BOOKLET OF VIEWS 

The Oglethorpe University Press has published a 
very beautiful illustrated booklet of views showing 
the college buildings, many campus views and various 
features of college life. It also carries with it a four- 
color reproduction of Audubon's famous picture of 
The Stormy Petrels for which the athletic teams of 
the college are named. This booklet is sold for $1.00 
but we will gladly send a copy of it without charge 
to any prospective student with the understanding 
that it will be returned to us after inspection. 

A postal card addressed to the President will bring 
a copy of this literature to you by return mail.

REVISED CHARTER OF 
OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

PETITION TO AMEND. 

GEORGIA— Fulton County. 

To the Superior Court of Fulton County: 

The petition of Oglethorpe University respectfully shows: 

1. That by an order of this honorable court, petitioner 
was duly incorporated on the 6th day of May, 1913; to which 
proceedings reference is made. 

2. That Paragraph 4 of said charter granted as aforesaid, 
is sought to be amended by enlarging the scope thereof, by 
substituting in lieu of the original Paragraph 4 the follow-

EXHIBIT "A" 

Resolved by the Board of Trustees-Founders of Oglethorpe 
University that paragraph 4, as it now reads in the original 
charter thereof dated May 6, 1913, be stricken and in lieu 
thereof, a new paragraph 4 shall be inserted as follows: 

The corporate functions which shall mean the control of 
the property of the corporation, its purchase, sale and other 
disposition shall be by a Board of Trustees of such number 
as may be provided in the by-laws; no one is or shall ever 
bee eligible to membership in such board except a member 
in good standing of a Presbyterian or Reformed Church. This 
Board shall be elected from among those of the Board of 
Founders, hereinafter provided for, who shall possess the 
requisite qualifications. No mortgage, sale or other disposi- 
tion of the real property of the corporation shall ever be made 
except by vote of the Board of Trustees in a regular meeting 
or in a special meeting called therefor. Notice must be giv- 
en of the call for any such special meeting of the purpose to 
consider such disposition. 

There shall be a Board of Founders of such number as may 
be prescribed by the by-laws who shall be persons who have 
shown their interest in the purposes of the University by 
contributing thereto, or in whose behalf there has been con- 
tributed in cash, property or solvent promises not less than 
one thousand dollars and who are of such character and with 
such interest in promoting religion, morality and education as 
fits them for membership. This Board shall have the power 
and it shall be its duty to have control and supervision over 
the educational functions of the University, of its President, 
officers, faculty, and courses of study; to elect from among 
its members the Board of Trustees; to borrow money but not 
to secure the same lien on the real property; to elect from 
eligible persons successors of the present Board of Founders;

to create an Executive Committee with authority to perform 
all its functions when the Board is not in session, as may be 
provided for in the by-laws and to perform generally the ad- 
ministrative functions of the University. The present Board 
of Trustees-Founders shall constitute the Board of Founders, 
whose membersh and their successors shall hold for life un- 
less they are removed or resign. 

Resolved further that the President of the Board of Trus- 
tees-Founders be authorized and directed to take the necessary 
steps to amend the Constitution of Oglethorpe University as 
herein before resolved. 

I, Joseph R. Murphy, Secretary, Board of Trustees-Foun-
